Make Your Tropical Beach Wedding Rock
Planning a tropical beach wedding and want to be sure it knocks the socks off your attendees in addition to be the first day of the rest of your life with your spouse? Here are a few ways we’ve learned to make destination and beach weddings we’ve assisted bring to life WOW family and friends over the years. (Why should the happy couple be the only ones who gush over the momentous occasion?)
Don’t Have Your Ceremony on the Beach
If you are having an outdoor wedding, especially one that’s on the beach, make sure to let your guests know so they can dress appropriately. For some folks, anything that isn’t paved means they’re going to need to wear flats. You’re better off to warn your family than to have an empty dance floor at your reception due to turned ankles and rolled joints. (Plus, you’ll be happier if you don’t try to trudge through sand in stilettos, too!)
Don’t Give Bugs an Invitation
Mosquitoes and other pests can ruin even the most festive weddings and receptions. Plan for bugs! If you’re traveling for your big day, it’s not unreasonable to see what the locals recommend warding off insects in their area. If you don’t get a specific recommendation, bug spray for guests would be a solid investment.
Your Ceremony Doesn’t Have to be Open Air to be Amazing
Some of our favorite wedding ceremonies, destination and otherwise, have been held in chapels by the water rather than out in the elements. Beautiful scenery and serene beaches are just as perfect when visited after the ceremony. (Plus, it saves the photographer time and effort in the retouching phase – there are bound to be fewer fly away hairs when you don’t have winds coming off the water!)
